Kristen Carlson

FL-15 (D)
Current office holder: Dennis Ross (R)
After graduating from law school, Kristen worked as a prosecutor before working for the Florida Department of Citrus as General Counsel. For much of her career, she has fought to protect Florida growers, manufacturers, and consumers. Kristen is now running for Congress in an open seat race and a key pick-up opprtunity for Democrats.
How does Kristen align with Project 100's values?
  • Economic Opportunity: Kristen supports fiscally responsible middle-class tax cuts, but not the latest tax cuts which disproportionately benefit the wealthy and hurt working class Americans. She believes District 15, situated between Tampa and Orlando, is poised for its own breakout moment in high-income job creation and she will work to make this happen.
  • Equal Treatment Under the Law: Kristen will work to pass comprehensive immigration reform that strengthens our border while providing a path to citizenship for hard-working undocumented immigrants who pay taxes and contribute to our economy.
  • Healthy People & Communities: Kristen will work to fix the problems with the Affordable Care Act and to bring down costs for Americans. She supports women's right to choose, and she believes in climate change, its harmful effects and its economic opportunities. Kristen supports the second amendment but will support legislation for universal background checks, a ban on bump-stocks, and a ban on high capacity magazines and military-style assault weapons.
